TwitPic, butthurt and pathetic, brings in the lawyers to fight Posterous
TwitPic on the other hand figured that RSS scraping was enough to land Posterous a letter from its lawyers and a threat to sue. Within hours of the TwitPic importer tool going live, Posterous' servers had been banned by TwitPic. According to TechCrunch, TwitPic says they're 'not going to stop users from exporting data', but would 'prefer users to do so manually.' Awww.
Now, rest assured, this won't go any further than limp-wristed prepubescent punches, but I bet the folks at Posterous have huge grins on their faces right now. TwitPic on the other hand won't have to bother cooking breakfast this morning: it can just scrape that delicious butthurt egg from its face and chew on that instead.
